  • Go On A Horseback Safari in Africa

    By Matthew Sterne |

    Giddyup! It was Winston Churchill who said that the back of a horse is the greatest seat you will ever have. This is useful to remember when you’re looking for a front row seat at one of the greatest shows on earth – your African safari. Riding:  The art of keeping a horse between you and the ground. There are many ways to experience an African safari - the traditional game drives, the popular bush walks, even aerial tours which take you up over the plains. There is, however, something intimate, something wonderfully intuitive about experiencing a safari on horseback. While most horseback safaris do not require great equestrian prowess, a healthy love of riding is encouraged. Where to go for some of Africa’s best horse safaris:  Cape Winelands - South Africa We begin i...

  • Top 10 Activities in Victoria Falls

    By Matthew Sterne |

    Vic Falls is known as the adventure capital of Africa, and one look at what awaits visitors here and you can see why! Of course, the focal point of many activities is the falls itself but beyond 'the smoke that thunders' there is much to excite and exhilarate visitors. From bungee jumping to white river rafting, there are a myriad of activities to keep everyone happy, as well as some gentler pursuits for the less adventurous... 1. Scenic Microlight Flights For a rather different way to experience these magnificent landscapes, why not try microlighting (see above). A fascinating and exhilarating ride that will have you soaring like a bird over the African savanna. 2. Quad Biking Tear around the rugged African savanna and feel the wind in your hair - it'll make you feel young again. U...

  • Through the lens with Joseph Hsiao

    By Matthew Sterne |

    Joseph and Deanna Hsiao from Massachusetts recently visited Southern Africa where they celebrated Joseph’s birthday. They started their trip in Cape Town at Cape Royale and from there went on to Idube Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand and then Victoria Falls Safari Lodge in Victoria Falls. "Africa has been on our radar for a long time. When it came time to plan our journey we were quickly overwhelmed with choices and operators. Rhino Africa certainly made that process much easier” Joseph said. The trip was expertly planned and organised by Samantha, one of our senior consultants. “We enjoyed every part of the trip from Cape Town to Sabi Sand to Victoria Falls. Each destination gave us different perspectives and experiences. Southern Africa is truly an amazing place and I hope to visit ag...

  • My Trip | Eat Your Heart Out Attenborough

    By Matthew Sterne |

    The similarities cannot be denied. I'm well aware that if you're going to compare anything to the world-renowned BBC series, Planet Earth then the contemporary better be good. Really good. The Lyons' photographs fulfill this strict criteria. I understand that this claim may be met with skepticism. Anticipating this I'll offer three reasons justifying the association: 1. Both create an intense wanderlust - a sharp desire to pack a bag and explore unfamiliar landscapes. 2. The photographs and the footage give nature and her favourite offspring, wildlife, a chance to show off. 3. For those who have listened to David Attenborough wax lyrical about Emperor penguins again and again, you'll know that from 'Pole to Pole' isn't a reference to 'the Diaries of an Exotic Dancer,' and 'Dese...

  • There’s nothing quite like Victoria Falls from a helicopter

    By Tamlin Wightman |

    "There’s something about a Gin & Tonic, the call of the African Fish Eagle and a tangerine, sunset sky that just has to resonate somewhere in you." Such are the words of one of our inspired explorers below. And as you'll see, as the last of our new consultants bring you the final glories of their journey, the last leg in Zambia clearly stole their hearts. Whether it's the country's people, their spirits both as gentle as the upper reaches of the Zambezi, and as strong as the tumble of the Falls, or the adrenaline of the activities - the tiger fishing, the trail biking, the helicopter flips, Zambia is a wilderness worth treading and today it's Beverley, Lauren and Benjamin who take you there. [caption id="attachment_26619" align="alignnone" width="550"] We hope you've enjoyed t...
